EP Review: My Body My Soul Vol.1 – Natty Boi Zoe

NATTY BOI ZOE‘s latest EP, takes on a rather lascivious view of his love interest…

Displaying familiar samples of afterhours vibes and atmospheric/alternative take on R&B, the self-proclaim street poet delivers his yearning lust for his significant other in a cross between a velvety freestyle and his new-found spoken word signature.

‘My Body, My Soul Vol.1’ is definitely a collection for hanging out with some friends..or that special one…but for all those shrinking violets out there, the lyrics may be too hot to handle…but if you dare to have a listen, check it out below…

EP Review: The Blu Tape 4 – Dizzy Rambunctious

In the past, DIZZY RAMBUNCTIOUS has dropped a series of bluesy projects – and I have to say his latest EP, ‘The Blu Tape 4’ is the most diverse body of work that he has dished out.

A laid-back, Massive Attack -esque number along with an equally laid-back boombap-ish killer (featured in ‘No Interludes’) and an upbeat and idyllic EDM delight were added the urbanised soulful jazzy vibe, featured in the previous blue tape collections.

If you know of this New Jersey-based beatmaker, then you know he’s on a serious mission take a bluesy soulful combo to new heights…and if this is your first introduction of DIZZY RAMBUNCTIOUS, well this is the perfect opportunity to hop on the ride and sample his almost instrumental pieces below.

Mixtape Review: Bixby Beach – Nayla Savannah

I’ve known NAYLA SAVANNAH since starting this blog and it wasn’t until a couple of months ago that this young rapper has resurfaced and dropped her trip-hop number ‘Dial’. I’m soooo glad that she’s still on the scene as I hate to see such talent go to waste.

Cementing her comeback to the scene, Nayla recently dropped her mixtape, ‘Bixby Beach’ which carries on the chilled out theme from her previous efforts, ‘Pretend’ (A MUST LISTEN) and ‘Cruisin’ – a theme that gives the mixtape a perfect introduction through the appropriately named ‘Welcome’.

There were times that a boisterous bassline makes its presence known in the ten piece set through tracks, ‘Forest’ and ‘Thank You’, adding some real satisfying meat to the featherly soundscapes.

Above all what pleases me the most about this mixtape is Nayla’s effortlessly blasé flow. Check her out below:

EP Review: Poets Of The Dark Scrolls – Redd Tunes

After claiming the blog’s Album of the Month title with previous EP, ‘The Sickness’, REDDTUNE bounces right back with his latest set, ‘Poets Of The Dark Scrolls.’

Featuring yet another stellar lineup, ‘Poets Of The Dark Scrolls’ continues to delve into keeping Britcore alive, by bringing on the laid-back boom-bap vibe…and a few extras thrown in, which includes a boisterous, reggae-fused introduction, a guitar-drenched production plus a straight-up urban forceful drive that ends the set on a high.

Although REDDTUNE remains loyal to his beloved subgenre of hip-hop, ‘Poet Of The Dark Scrolls’ sees London producer/rapper and his army of collaborators go at the deep end and really experiment with various genres that could potentially appeal to a wider audience.

EP Review: Jade Vol.1 – Bianca Jade

Following the release of her single, ‘Feelin’, Florida’s rising R&B singer BIANCA JADE continues to spread the message of self-love and empowerment to the fellow female race, through her second EP ‘Jade Vol.1’, released yesterday.

Comprising of just four tracks, ‘Jade Vol.1’ introduces a bed of soothingly idyllic soundscapes, met with an infectiously dominant b-line through ‘Used To This.’ This combo, topped off by Jade’s alluringly delicate vocals, continues throughout the set.

Concluding piece,’B.S.’, pleasantly interrupts the EP’s soothing theme, with angelic guitar plucks taking centre stage and gives some body to the track’s airy arrangement. Jade’s vocals, which remained constantly delicate throughout the EP, suddenly roars with passion, definitely one of the highlights of the collection.

Having creating major buzz in her hometown, Miami with debut EP, ‘B-Light’, the Cuban/Jamaican songbird decided to step up her music career by moving to New York City – and her latest offering has every possibility to repeat that success in the Big Apple.

It’s time to witness a star on the rise – check her out below:
